PITTSFIELD, Maine (AP) - Police in Pittsfield and the Somerset County Sherriff’s Office are investigating a rash of pellet gun vandalism that plagued the Maine town on New Year’s Eve.

Sgt. Timothy Roussin told The Morning Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1SuJqnH ) on Sunday that the perpetrator targeted several downtown businesses on Dec. 31. He estimated the amount of damage was between $5,000 and $10,000.

Roussin says three or four windows were shot at, including a People’s United Bank branch, a gas station and a funeral home.

Police say they are in the process of gathering surveillance video from the scenes to search for potential clues. They say it’s been difficult for investigating officers to obtain the footage because of the holiday.

Roussin says no suspects have been identified at this time.
